Alyssa Lock is a name synonymous with the Snapper Rocks surf break, having started surfing and competing there at age six! Now almost 21, she’s a regular on the Women’s World Surfing League.
“Weet-Bix has been the go-to for breakfast in my house for as long as I can remember. Mornings wouldn’t be the same without it. I’ve tried all sorts of combinations but at the moment I just can’t go past Weet-Bix with sliced banana on top.”
So what gets her up and out to catch those early waves? Surf, sun, fun and of course, Weet-Bix!
